In our July issue, Eos looks at the collection, study, and storage of cores—from sediment drilled up from the age of the dinosaurs to tree rings as big as a house.
Spaceborne lidar shows that more ice than expected is leaving the tropical tropopause layer in the atmosphere.
Exposure to sunlight creates telltale patterns in the polar ice cap that change over time, potentially providing insight into the climatic history of the Red Planet.
By modeling over 4 billion years of the Moon’s impact history, scientists estimate that the lunar poles may harbor billions of metric tons of subsurface ice.
Using topographic data, researchers have estimated the ages of water ice–containing craters near the Moon’s poles and ruled out volcanism as being a primary route for water delivery.
Ice avalanches may have traveled at speeds of up to 80 meters per second.
Using cosmogenic nuclide dating, scientists determined a 10-meter core just below the surface to be over a million years old.
A new special collection in JGR: Planets explores how ice has played a key role in the development of the landscape on the surface of Ceres.
Researchers discover microbial life on ice spires known as penitentes on the arid, sunlight-blasted upper reaches of Llullaillaco, one of the best earthly analogues for Mars.
The model was previously used to describe the behavior of ferromagnets in the presence of external magnetic fields.
